PRESIDENTS BILL CLINTON AND GEORGE W. BUSH TO MEET MAY 29, 2009 IN TORONTO, CANADA

May 26, 2009: Barry Cauchon

Bill Clinton   George W. Bush

On Friday, May 29, 2009, President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush will meet face-to-face for the first time since President Barack Obama’s Inauguration on January 20, 2009. The event will take place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in downtown Toronto, Canada in front of an estimated crowd of 6000 people. The two Presidents will discuss the challenges facing the world in the 21st century .

In the last two years, I have volunteered for events like these…and so I will be there again. Previously I’ve worked at four speaking events with President Clinton and actually met him at the last one. It was an exciting and proud moment for me. Although I do not expect to meet either gentleman at this event, I am thrilled to be a part of it once again and help out the folks who produce these shows.

To be clear, it is not my intention to report on the content of the meeting (that would be inappropriate as I am not there as a reporter) but I will comment on how the day went and if there were any highlights.

I like seeing our Presidents. Whether they are Democrats or Republicans, loved or hated or even if they were considered as good or bad politicians, these men held the top position in the country. They were the Presidents of the United States and history was made by them. And you know I’m fascinated with history.

Best

Barry
